Join us on 5th March to celebrate International Women's Day at our inspiring event with Madeleine Rees, the Secretary-General of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). Stephanie Harrison KC will be interviewing Madeleine on her impressive career to date, working internationally and nationally to advance human rights, eliminate discrimination, and remove obstacles to justice.

In addition to her work specialising in discrimination law with a major firm in the United Kingdom, Madeleine has also held various roles with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) – including as Head of the OHCHR in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where she helped expose human rights abuses and the involvement of UN peacekeepers in sex trafficking.

As Secretary-General of WILPF since 2010, Rees is leading the organisation’s efforts to work through national and international legal frameworks to advance a future of human security and justice for all. Passionate about connecting women across borders to share experiences and organise for action, she is committed to building a true global movement for feminist peace. In 2014, Rees was awarded the OBE for her services to human rights, particularly women’s rights and international peace and security.
